The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Thompson vs. Bolton

    haven't seen a thread on WBB about this matchup!

    Donnie Thompson is to take on Andy Bolton, head to head, at the BPC british championships which will be held July 12-13th.

    what does everyone think about this matchup? two world class SHW's going head to head. THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME

    i'm for donnie. USA and WSBB for life!

    I also would like to see Donnie do well as he doesn't seem to get the same recognition as Bolton even though he is arguably as strong or stronger.

    Donnie is the man! Not much needs to be said about his squat and deadlift. His bench is what will put him over Bolton.

    I honestly believe that this will be the biggest (literally and figuratively) matchup that powerlifting has seen in quite a long time.

    I have spoken to Donnie about this and he is ready!

    My personal opinion is that Donnie will get it done. They are very close in the squat. Donnie smokes Andy in the bench. Andy will not pull 1000 lbs in a full meet where he squats in the 1200 lbs range. I would guess more in the 940-950 lbs range. If Donnie can get a high 800s pull he should be able to take it.

    I've always gone to the gym with the conviction that I'll be the hardest working mother****er in the joint. Make that your credo, and hope we don't lift at the same place.

    AWESOME. i've always liked Ano, and i've been keeping up with his recovery process since his knee injury through his log on elitefts and the metal forums. i was wondering when he was planning on doing another meet. hes looking very strong now.
